Last Monday, the Raiderettes lost to district rival Huntland by a final score of 3-1.
Errors proved costly, as none of the Lady Hornets’ runs were earned. Raiderette’s pitcher, Sierra Bateman, held Huntland to only three hits and no walks.
The Raiderettes had nine hits in the game. Emily Powell led with three.
Moore County’s lone run came off the bat of Brittany Lowe when she singled to center to score Kyleigh Camp – giving MCHS a 1-0 lead.
The Raiderettes held that lead until the bottom of the fifth inning, when Huntland took advantage of two fielding errors to take the lead 3-1.
Unable to get a base runner in the sixth inning, it came down to the seventh inning stretch.
Kelsey Camp and Powell both singled with one out, but were left stranded on base as the game ended.
Last Tuesday, the Raiderettes traveled to take on Cornersville. The Lady Bulldogs won the last 16 meetings with the Raiderettes, but that winning streak came to an end with some fierce hitting by MCHS.
Trailing by a score of 4-1 going into the fourth inning, the Raiderettes scored four runs to take a 5-4 lead. They added two more in the fifth, four in the sixth, and two in the seventh to earn a 13-4 victory.
Bateman had another successful outing on the mound, allowing the Lady Bulldogs only two hits and two walks.
The Raiderettes pounded out 13 hits and drew six walks. Kate Bowles and Powell led the team with three hits each. Bowles had three RBIs and Lowe had two.
The Raiderettes travel to district rival Chapel Hill on Thursday. The game begins at 4 p.m.
